The Bachelor of Tourism (Ecotourism) caters for those students who have a keen interest in environmentally sustainable and culturally responsible forms of tourism. The Ecotourism specialisation has two key foci. These include developing a thorough knowledge of some of Australia's most popular natural landscapes and acquiring the skills necessary to design, plan and deliver inspiring, engaging and memorable experiences for visitors of these natural areas through well-developed interpretation skills. Experiential based forms of learning are a key feature of the specialisation and allow students to apply the knowledge and skills they have developed throughout their studies. An important aspect of learning within the Ecotourism degree takes place outside the classroom. Many subjects offer students the opportunity to engage with the tourism industry with field trips to many of Victoria's most significant nature based tourism destinations such as The Grampians and Wilsons Promontory as well as week-long study tours to Kangaroo Island in South Australia and Central Australia. Students experience theory in practice and learn directly from owners, managers, experts and specialists in the field.
